The UNESCO–listed Amalfi Coast lies on the southern shores of the Salerno Gulf in Italy, attracting sun-worshippers and adventure-seekers alike. As the sun shines and the Mediterranean waves roll in, here are a few ways to enjoy coastal Italy.

  • Hit the waves and soak up rays in style on a private cruise to the Amalfi Coast and Capri.
  • Hire a private guide to explore the coast with ease on a day trip from Naples.
  • Discover top attractions and hidden landmarks around Positano, Ravello, and Sorrento.
  • Explore the volcanic ruins of ancient Pompeii, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • Sample the mozzarella, pizza, and spaghetti for which the region is famous.
  • Hike into the hills for spectacular views of the coastal scenery.

Things to Know 
  • The Amalfi Coast is a popular tourist draw all year-round, but gets especially busy in summer from May through September.
  • To score a spot on the sand at the busier beaches, you’ll need to stake your claim early in the day. Alternatively, head to one of the more remote beaches, such as Fornillo or Laurito.
  • Keep in mind that larger crowds mean tours to nearby sites like Pompeii, Naples, Capri, and Mount Vesuvius are also likely to sell out well in advance.
  • Accommodation options range in price along the coast, from apartment rentals to luxury hotels, but do note that all prices go up in summer.
  • You can get around by bus, car, or motor scooter year-round, but in summer it’s also possible to get from town to town by boat.
  • Two major Italian holidays fall in summer: the Festa Della Repubblica on June 2 and Ferragosto (also called Assumption Day) on August 15. Expect some closures.
